Space to collect thoughts and ideas for a collaboration between geopandas and PySAl/ splot

The purpose of this issue is to start a discussion between the geopandas and PySAL/ splot community on how to best collaborate in the field of visualising geographic data and spatial analyses.

Open questions:

  • What is the scope and division of both projects? (Especially regarding map visualisation functionality?)
  • With both packages supporting each other, will releases be coordinated?
  • Choropleth visualisations located in geopandas or splot?
  • How sophisticated are geopandas .plot() methods and splot visualisations? Where to draw the line?
  • Which other visualisations are splot and geopandas planning on supporting in future? (points, polygons, lines, interactivity...)

Current connections:

  • Geopandas dataframes as required input parameter for certain visualisations
  • splot using geopandas .plot functionality for maps
  • geopandas choropleth visualisation building on esda.mapclassify

Ideas for new mapping features:

  • North Arrows
  • Scale bar
  • grid lines
  • extended legend functionality

Answered & Decisions:

Potential upcoming meeting:

  • Sprints/ or Weekday at SciPy
